? this is ridiculous. >> yeah, more than ridiculous, to be sure. so a teacher in oregon made an interesting point in support of arming faculty. here's what she said about getting a gun. >> i don't think guns in a school system will ever be very palatable. i also think that we need to give teachers an opportunity to buy some time. whether that's with, you know, district-issued pepper spray, maybe a taser, something that's not necessarily lethal that buys us some time to protect our students. >> now, i can see the consequences to that. all kinds of misuses and misapplications of what is in the teacher's hand that can have deleterious consequence for our children. but i don't want to speak for you. what's your reaction to what she said? >> i think we have to ask ourselves, what's our aspiration? you know, we can imagine these bloody scenarios, and what if? what if there's a gun? and of course there's a lot of research to show that being armed does not in fact make you safer. that you're three times as likely to be a homicide victim if you have a gun in your house. the nra has its o

from oregon, are proposing to restore the filibust filibuster. it's a very simple proposal. they it want to bring back the filibuster as it existed in "mr. smith goes to washington." they want it it to be like jimmy stewart where they had to go to the floor and stand on your principles. now, unfortunately, the filibuster is usually used secretly behind closed doors to stop debate to prevent us from even having a vote. that has nothing to do with what americans understand as a filibuster and there is simply no reason to allow the abuses to continue. >> well, it means that if they were to filibuster, they have to go to the floor and do as you say, "mr. smith goes to washington," and talk endlessly until some conclusion. what do the changes mean for democratic bills, you think? >> it could mean a lot, because many of the bills that democrats have proposed have majority support. they can win in the senate. the problem is they can't get to the 6 o votes that would be required to break a filibuster or force a vote. and so all that's being proposed here is to say, look, if you want to do a
